PAYDAY 3 is finally out on early access, with the full release approaching rapidly, and everything is pointing at the game being an incredible experience. Developed and published by Starbreeze Studios, the game is an evolution of what they themselves managed to achieve after 10 years of iteration with PAYDAY 2. And while that means a fresh start in terms of content, just how much more demanding has the title become in regards to hardware?
Unlike its predecessor, PAYDAY 3 has been developed using Unreal Engine 4, with plans for a change to Unreal 5 further down the line. While the engine isn’t the newest and top of the line, the devs did manage to squeeze out major graphical improvements when compared with the previous game. But still, they’ve also made sure to make the game accessible to as many players as possible, and while you will need a slightly beefier PC to play it in maximum settings, the baseline isn’t too crazy.

As the heist simulator is an online shooter before anything else, you might want to make sure that there won’t be any problems running it from your side before worrying about anything else. Thankfully that won’t be a difficult task, as the minimum specs are quite attainable. Below you’ll find all of the hardware and software requirements to play PAYDAY 3.
